The "lower case "n" on "nook" is also an entry on Bloom's blog.
But the real kicker is this:
Not only did he latch onto the made-up word "bookery" that I used in that post, but he addressed me by my real name
. I didn't notice, at the time-- I go by my real name, Darren Garrison, in lots of areas on the internet and never had any real intention of being anonymous here (I'm nobody famous-- my real name is just as "anonymous" as my initials ardeegee) but here's what I didn't think about until just now-- I've never called myself by my real name on this forum.
So he had to do some googling to track down my real name. Googling ardeegee shows on the first page an entry from AnandTech listing my name, which is how Dan Bloom likely found it.
Why do I say how Dan Bloom found it, not "taglines?" Because if you go back and look at Dan Bloom's earlier threads here, you will see that a week ago he deleted most of his posts from within the threads that he started. He left various reasons for the deletions (such as "offline") but on some, he leaves the reason as "darren garrison" or "darren garrison aka ardeegee." He is trying to delete his history of having been here under his name.
So-- yes, I think that "taglines" at the very least has been hanging out with Dan Bloom, and probably IS Dan Bloom, trying to get a fresh start. Dan likes new words-- perhaps he will like sockpuppet
Is there a MobleRead rule about one person having more than one account?
I thought I had read this exact thread before, a strong sense of deja vu.
After reading your post I now know why. Taglines' post is written just like Dan Bloom's posts, and the first few replies are the exact same skepticism from the other thread!
Glad to know I'm not going crazy.
